Expansive windows in this space add plenty of warm, natural light, making the space inviting. However, these windows didn't always make the space cozy, so designers added new silk drapes to block morning sun.

The ceiling was painted green to give the space depth, while modern art was added to give personality to this mater bedroom.
The living room decor is kept clean and basic, drawing on Scandinavian design, but Joanna provided a softening counterbalance by incorporating a variety of textures and patterns — like the linen upholstered sofa, leather chairs and ornately patterned Persian rug.

A traditional Persian rug, large-scale modern artwork and a wood-paneled wall give this open, airy family room a homey, transitional feel.

In the bedroom, the black and white palette of the living room is flipped on its head with moody black walls. The color is Wrought Iron, from the AphroChic Brooklyn In Color paint collection.

Several patterns and a rich color scheme were the focus of designer SuzAnn Kletzien's plan for this eclectic living room.

Kletzien paired together a black vintage Persian rug with two other rugs, including one with a modern blue and white chevron design, to create a layered look.
Beyond the neutral Persian rug and gray sofas, elements have been brought in to add a wash of color to the space.
